Radon Testing in Rhinelander WI
What’s Radon Gas?
Radon is a dangerous cancer-causing agent. Radon gas is proven to lead to lung cancer in humans.
38%+ of houses in the Rhinelander WI area have a radon gas level higher than the carcinogenic level.
Radon gas naturally occurs in the silt, not the home. No property, new or old,is fully encapsulated against radon infiltration.
Each house meshes with the ground underneath it differently. This is why houses adjoining each other have radically different radon gas saturation.
Radon accumulation will rise or fall every day and with the seasons within a reasonable range. A quick radon measurement measures a small time period and a solid metric of whether or not the home has a radon gas problem.
Radon has a half-life of only days. That means that radon gas saturation won’t be worse if the property is closed for months or years.
Surprisingly, homes are not totally hermetically sealed.
Gaseous contaminants will seep in through each ground-facing gap in the structure such as sump pits, plumbing, and even minor cracks in the concrete foundation.
The way to know confidently the levels of radon gas in the abode is to run a radon test.
Measuring a property for radon gas is a important procedure when done with a property purchase.
Your radon expert will position the radon gas analyzers in the structure. Radon analyzers will be located in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching earth. For most properties a few monitors are left in the house for the radon measurement.
Your radon gas technician will seal every window and door, seal the damper on the fireplace, and confirm the air conditioning is running in the required manner. Our radon professional will also seal any necessary window with tamper-proof tape to ensure that ventilation standards are upheld.
The radon gas probes are stored in the home for several days measuring the levels of radon gas in the building. A specialist will come back to the structure once the radon measurement is finished to remove the monitors and create a report.
